Dramatic Transformation of an Urban Duplex
This three-bedroom duplex in TriBeCa, New York was transformed from plain white box into an incredible living space. Owned by a fabric designer, painter and sculptor who purchased the home for $2.5 million, it took 18 months and an additional $2 million to renovate this property into a spectacular work of art. As one enters this 4,200 square foot property through a giant steel door into the elevated foyer they are presented with the centerpiece of the duplex, which is a cast-iron and mahogany staircase welded together inside the home. It is backed by an oxidized copper screen made in the form of a double ellipsis which the owner spent six months crafting by hand.
